A 3D printed Book Cabin made from robots has opened in Shanghai’s Baoshan Wisdom Bay Science and Technology Park. It was designed by Professor Xu Weiguo of the School of Architecture of Tsinghua University and built with printing machines and materials developed by the team. It is part of the “Art Bridge Space” in Shanghai, which can be used for book shows, academic discussions, and book sharing sessions. At the same time, it is also “Art Bridge 2021 Annual Figure”-Xu Weiguo’s artwork.

由機器人製成的3D打印圖書室已經在上海的寶山智慧灣科技園開業。 它是由清華大學建築學院的徐衛國教授設計的,並使用該團隊開發的印刷機和材料建造。 它是上海“藝術橋樑空間”的一部分,可用於書籍展覽,學術討論和書籍分享會。 同時也是徐衛國的作品“ Art Bridge 2021 Annual Figure”。


The design of the Book Cabin started from the concept sketch, then used MAYA software according to the needs of entity modeling, and carried out the space shape and structure rationality to determine the implementation model. Then through the printing path planning and printing coding to complete the digital file, and then the digital files drive the robot 3D printing equipment to concrete the materials layer by layer stack printing, thus building the curved shape of the Book Cabin. The Book Lodge has a total area of about 30 square meters and can accommodate 15 people for various activities.

Book Cabin的設計從概念草圖開始,然後根據實體建模的需要使用MAYA軟件,並進行空間形狀和結構合理性確定實現模型。 然後通過打印路徑規劃和打印編碼來完成數字文件,然後數字文件驅動機器人3D打印設備將材料逐層堆疊打印具體化,從而構建出書房的彎曲形狀。 Book Lodge的總面積約為30平方米,可容納15人進行各種活動。

The materials used for the Cabin printing are the fiber concrete developed by the team, which does not add steel bars and does not use formwork. The printing of the Cabin uses 2 sets of robotic arm printing systems, one in situ printing building foundation and main structure, another in situ pre-printing arc wall, and a dome roof. Each printing equipment needs 2 people to operate, a total of 4-5 construction technicians to participate in the construction process.

客艙印刷所使用的材料是該團隊開發的纖維混凝土,它不添加鋼筋,也不使用模板。 客艙的打印使用兩套機械臂打印系統,一套原位印刷建築物的基礎和主要結構,另一套原位預印刷弧形牆和圓頂屋頂。 每台印刷設備需要2個人進行操作,共有4-5名施工技術人員參與施工過程。

The wall structure of the Book Cabin adopts a hollow wall design, which is filled with thermal insulation mortar to form a thermal insulation wall. The building surface has two kinds of texture, one is a laminated surface formed by laminated printing, another is a well-designed woven pattern texture on the sidewall in front of the entrance, let people have a delicate feeling.

書房的牆壁結構採用空心牆設計,其中填充了隔熱砂漿以形成隔熱牆。 建築表面有兩種紋理,一種是通過層壓印刷形成的層壓表面,另一種是設計合理的編織圖案紋理,位於入口前面的側壁上,讓人有一種精緻的感覺。

The design and construction of the Book Cabin show that 3D printing, as a way of intelligent construction, not only saves materials and manpower, but also has high construction efficiency and high construction speed, and can achieve irregular shape construction and ensure high quality of the construction.

書房的設計與施工表明,3D打印作為一種智能化的施工方式,不僅節省了材料和人力,而且具有很高的施工效率和施工速度,可以實現不規則形狀的施工並確保高質量的施工。 建造。
